The car that interests me, at least on paper, is the 2016 A6 2.0T. Here, if you can accept FWD, they give you a faster 252hp engine with S-tronic. Unfortunately, you lose S-tronic with AWD, which...

True, however if the current solution is AWD, doesn't the system suck power and add weight? Recall that the only engine currently offered for the A4 is a 220hp 4 cyl.

But isn't it built on a FWD system with a forward weight balance?

I want to like Audi -- and I'm keeping a close eye on the next A4 -- what's with their FWD platforms? To me, RWD is the way to go. I don't get why Audi is still doing it differently.

The two updates for my 2014, #5062 and #5021 are not new. Is there something you guys are seeing that's more recent?

It's worth mentioning that paying all cash would have little if anything to do with the selling price of the vehicle. The price would have probably been the same if you had leased it.

Sold my $58k 2007 530i after 7 years to a private party for $19k. It had only 42k miles, which is comparable to PP's mileage.

Keep in mind that your car might not be worth $25k in 7 years. If you paid $51k, you're essentially assuming a 50% resale value, which is not what I've experienced -- and I've owned several BMWs to...

Are Geniuses privy to unreleased pricing? I thought they were essentially Center employees who had the same access as sales staff.

Mike,

I went from a pre-LCI E60 to my current 535d. Mine as the 704 suspension. And while I agree that everything feels very "remote" I don't find it to be quite as dead as you do. Part of what...

I don't understand how you could possibly single out the E39/F30 pair and say they're any more related than any other pair of BMWs. Why not compare the F30 to the E60 and the E34 as well?

It doesn't come down to numbers. The issue is that a 3 is a 3 and you're not getting the luxury (nor are you trading off the sportiness) of a 5 just because the F30 has now grown in size. The feel...

No, the E39 is not closer to the F30 than the E60. The gulf between the 3 Series and the 5 Series is quite wide. The E39 and E60 are much closer together than to any 3 Series BMW. I spent 13 years...
